When legal issues arise, organisations and their counsel turn to experienced accounting, economics, and financial professionals with a successful record of response to urgent situations, whenever and wherever such professionals are needed. We assist attorneys and legal counsel by conducting internal investigations related to corruption, accounting fraud, or other types of fraud and by helping establish effective risk management, compliance adherence, and anticorruption processes, controls, and procedures. We prepare valuation models and perform financial or economic analyses for the purposes of quantifying damages in antitrust and commercial litigation and disputes. We deploy electronic-discovery and other techniques in litigations or in situations in which financial or other data must be preserved, mined, reconstructed, or analysed.

Our experts perform economic and financial analyses of a broad range of issues involving litigation, antitrust, and other regulatory investigations. And we carry out valuation analyses for mergers and acquisitions, financial reporting, bankruptcy and workout, and tax planning services.
We deploy efficiently sized teams of experienced professionals who combine investigative skills with technical accounting knowledge to quickly uncover information. Our teams include certified public accountants, certified fraud examiners, computer forensic technology experts, individuals certified in financial forensics, and other experienced investigators. Our corporate investigations address such matters as:

– Financial Reporting Fraud
– Related-Party Transactions
– Ponzi Schemes & Kickback Schemes
– Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) Violations
– Self-Dealing
– Contract Compliance
– Theft & Misuse of Corporate Assets
– Post Event Monitoring

Working in such a competitive environment requires a great deal of expertise and experience. Our investigations team in EMEA is headed by Andrew Grantham, who has over 20 years’ experience acting as an accounting expert witness in litigation and arbitration. He has also given expert evidence on more than 20 occasions in courts and in international arbitrations, including ICC, ICSID, UNCITRAL and various ad hoc arbitrations around the world. Furthermore, he has acted as an arbitrator and regularly acts as a neutral expert determiner.

Andrew’s experience covers many aspects of accounting, valuation and financial matters, including breach of contract and loss of profits claims, minority shareholder and joint venture disputes and claims arising following acquisitions and sales of businesses. He has also been involved in major financial investigations, and has given expert evidence in criminal proceedings brought against a director of a construction company in respect of fraudulent trading.

Included in his portfolio of work are corporate finance due diligence, internal audit and corporate recovery liquidity appraisals. He has undertaken a significant number of valuations in both contentious and non-contentious situations.
